….Says Adeboye had always support agitation for Yoruba Nation
One of the chieftain of Afenifere, a pan-Yoruba socio-political organisation, Mogaji Gboyega Adejumo has revealed what happened the moment leaders of the group visited General Overseer of Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Pastor Enoch Adeboye over his son’s death.
Adejumo said the man of God played the video to them where Sunday Igboho hauled abusive words and cursed him and they were moved to tears.
Adejumo added that the Pastor Adeboye had been supporting Yoruba Nation agitation against Igboho’s belief and he shouldn’t have attacked such respectable person.
Recalled that the Yoruba Nation agitator and right activist, Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho recently attacked the man of God alleging that he is working against agitation for Yoruba Nation.
Igboho in the interview did not mince words when he hurled curses at leaders or pastors who refuse to support the secession agenda, saying God would kill their children and wives.
He said this during a live Facebook broadcast with his media aide, Olayomi Koiki, on Saturday night.
Koiki had asked the activist to send some words to Adeboye through the live video, to sympathise with him over the death of his son.
But, Sunday Igboho appeared infuriated by Koiki’s request as he asked if the man of God had declared his support for Yoruba nation.
But the Afenifere chieftain in a statement yesterday said the cleric has never worked against the agitation saying Igboho’s action of disrespecting important people in Yoruba land will rather be a disservice to good cause of agitation for Yoruba liberation.
Read his message in details below;
This evening, I accompanied Pa Ayo Adebanjo The Leader of Afenifere, who also had with him, Kabiesi Ọba Diipo Olaitan and Barrister Sola Ebiseni, on a condolence visit to Pastor Adeboye regarding the passing of his son.
A man of Great Faith is Pastor Adeboye. The sour point was the Igboho video in which Sunday clearly made an unsavoury reference to Pastor Adeboye’s son’s death. Pastor Adeboye himself made reference to it and the video was played back for us all to see. The leader, Pa Ayo Adebanjo was close to tears.
Now, I must say this — Today is the 3rd time of my meeting with Pastor Adeboye in less than one year and the second time with Pa Ayo Adebanjo. I can categorically say that Pastor Adeboye is totally behind the Yorùbá cause. A great disservice is to insult, mock and or disrespect, misrepresent this Great man of God, a proud Yoruba man that has been supporting all our efforts for a while now!
Once again, the idea of rushing to destroy our best assets in the untoward, ututored ignoble manner of late, abusing, cursing, demeaning our elders, leaders can only serve one purpose: Losing all the gains of years of hardwork — prolonging our days of slavery, annoying God to the point of 40 days becoming 40 years!!!
What is the Logic in running the very people who have the leverage to lead us out of slavery, like Moses did, down!?? Sheer IGNORANCE!*
Moses never raised a sword, instead, he raised his staff. Ojukwu fired many guns and mortars, and his people still lost.*
No one wants the Yorùbá out of Nigeria more than these men that have lately become the target of unwarranted abuse even by those who chose Buhari and whose antecedents are nothing to compare with the earth-shaking events that surround and define the incomparable lives of these men and leaders. Pa Ayo Adebanjo, a veteran of the Treasonable Felony saga of Papa Awolowo and the 30 others who went to jail for it. Same Pa Ayo Adebanjo, who stared down at Abacha and said; “I only owe you one bullet you coward, pick up your gun and shoot”
It saddens me therefore to see a lot of grandstanding, gaslighting, cognitive dissonance parading naked, misdirected anger remotely being made to appear as logic in a clear situation where wisdom has altogether taken shelter and all that is left is mutant presumptions, falsified perceptions and latent pretences…. Who will save the Yoruba from going into self-distrusting, self-disruptive excoriation……When we finish destroying ourselves, soon than late, what we will become is a laughing stock of the Fulani!
